World Cup: Jack Wilshere ‘could have made an impact for England’

Wilshere started Arsenal’s last home game of the season – a 5-0 win over Burnley

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere said he “could have made a real impact” for England at the World Cup.

The 26-year-old said he should be on the plane to Russia as he has felt “fit, sharp and strong all season”.

Manager Gareth Southgate named England’s third youngest squad in the tournament’s history on Wednesday with goalkeeper Joe Hart and Wilshere the two highest-profile omissions.

“It goes without saying, I’m incredibly disappointed,” said Wilshere
